The library in Geneva Hall on the San Anselmo campus is a branch of the Graduate
Theological Union library, which serves all the member seminaries of institutes of the GTU.
The GTU library also provides theological materials for borrowers from the University of California,
approximately 100,000 volumes, the San Anselmo branch library provides materials and information
to students taking courses on the San Anselmo campus; it also is an important resource for the
GTU community. The branch library is connected electronically to the GTU Library through an online
public access catalog and circulation system known by its acronym GRACE. The branch library
also has publicly accessible computers for internet access to GRACE and subscription databases.
The Flora Lamson Hewlett Library in Berkeley is the main GTU library. The holdings for the entire
GTU system, including the branch library in San Anselmo, can be searched through GRACE, with
supplemental information in the GTU library card catalog. This theological collection is among
the largest in the United States and is distinguished as being ecumenically one of the most diversified.
Acquisitions are coordinated with the UC Berkeley and Stanford libraries, with reciprocal borrowing
privileges for faculty and students of all three institutions.
GTU library privileges are available for a fee to SFTS graduates and Bay Area residents. The
GTU main and branch libraries do not provide direct loan by mail. Individuals who live outside
the Bay Area may use a local library to borrow through interlibrary loan. All requests for SFTS
library materials should be addressed to the Interlibrary Loan Department of the Flora Lamson
